IMPORTANT:

  • To enable monitoring of NetWare computers, download and install the following Novell Clients on the PlateSpin Recon server computer. The client downloads are free. When installing, select Custom Installation and install the Novell Modular Authentication Service (NMAS) client.

    Installation of the Novell Client impacts the standard Windows logon. See the Novell Client documentation for more information.

    You cannot monitor Netware machines with PlateSpin Recon server installed on a 64-bit Windows Server 2003 machine because Novell Client is not supported on a 64-bit Windows Server 2003 computer.

  • Only the CPU and disk utilization counters are supported for Netware 5.1 and 6.0. Only the CPU, disk, and memory utilization counters are supported for Netware 6.5 and higher.
